Thousands of people thronged the streets of downtown Jerusalem on Tuesday for the 49th annual Succot city march led by the city's mayor, Uri Lupolianski. The colorful event was attended by five thousand Evangelical Christians from eighty different countries for the Feast of the Tabernacles celebrations.
